The Society for the Study of New and Emerging Technologies (S.NET), an international association promoting intellectual exchange and critical inquiry about the advancement of new and emerging technologies in society, has launched a new website and twitter account. S.NET represents diverse communities, disciplines, viewpoints, and methodologies in the social sciences and humanities. It also welcomes contributions from scientists and engineers that advance the critical reflection of nanoscience and other emerging technologies. Its eighth annual meeting, “The Co-Production of Emerging Bodies, Politics and Technologies,” will be held October 12-14, 2016, in Bergen, Norway. The meeting will examine questions such as how emerging technologies such as nanotechnology or synthetic biology shape institutions, citizen organizations, and other political agencies, and how these emerging technologies are shaped by politics. The conference organizers invite proposals for papers, panels, film viewings, art exhibits, installations, and other creative formats.
